Starter phone for T-Mobile?

    I need to get my wife a basic, inexpensive Android phone. Her Palm pda has died, and we just upgraded our family plan to have data on both lines, so I figure it's time to lose that old Nokia candy bar.

    I noticed the HTC MyTouch 3G on Amazon going for around $125. Is there something wrong with these phones? Why would they be so much cheaper than any other Android I can find?

    Any tips appreciated!

    btw I'm using a Nexus One. My plan B is to bequeath it to her when the next Nexus comes out, assuming it has a MicroSD slot.

    I definitely wouldn't go for a Mytouch 3G. That was my first Android phone, and let me just tell you its DREADFULLY slow. That's exactly why it's so cheap. Don't get me wrong it was a decent device, but it's definitely not worth paying for these days.

    I would probably go for an LG Optimus T. It's probably one of the best budget phones on T-Mobile. Or if you are looking to spend somewhere closer to the $200 range you can easily find a Mytouch 4G or a G2 on Swappa.

    Thanks for your suggestions folks; I've ordered an LG Optimus T P509 from eBay and will hope for the best.
